    It's obvious the target market of this figure isn't practical people.

    I can already imagine other future difficulties. "DARN, without this figure, we could have used the smallest U-Haul, but NO, you gotta buy that thing"

    Omega supreme was 2 separate items. Is this going to be 8?

    I honestly have no idea how they plan put these in the mail

    The shipping shouldn't be that crazy. As packages get bigger, the shipping doesn't increase at the same scale. I've shipped boxes about the size of this thing, and it wasn't a ton more than a box half the size.

    I don't know if stores will be able to offer free shipping without it being built into the price, but it's not going to be astronomical.

    I still think this is either a joke or they’re selling it in 5 pieces.

    I was thinking 3 boxes (head was stated to be shipped separately, torso with arms and another box with both legs together) or 5 boxes (head, both arms together, torso and both legs separately).

    It’s not that those people forget about the Japanese cartoons. It’s that we don’t care about them. Just like loads don’t care about the marvel comics. Some of us don’t even care about the toys.
    My nostalgia is firmly rooted in the cartoons I watched on TV as a kid. I honestly can’t even remember watching any of Season 4 as a kid. The Return of Optimus Prime perfectly bookended the show for me and the Rebirth episodes have zero appeal. I’m used to transformers being a glorified toy commercial but Season four took that a litttle too far with the glut of new characters they show-horned in.

    Luckily, this also makes this a hard pass for me. I’m pretty close to being a completionist with my collection but within certain specific boundaries. I draw the line at the end of season 3. Nothing from Season 4, nothing from the Japanese version of the show.
    As cool as a four foot toy would be, Fort Max is outside the parameters of the collection so he’s a pass.

    They are returning to their roots. In Diaclone, the robots are mech suits.

    m8, the “guys” that control the “suits” in headmasters ARE transformers. They’re basically minicons who made larger bodies for themselves to be able to fight. Ginrai and company from Masterforce gained sentience at the end of the series and remained that way throughout victory and zone, after masterforce, I’m not really sure what you’re talking about.

    Without context, people will think we are discussing the latest Dexter Masterpiece :) 

    Or more likely, that's what would happen to most people once their significant other found out about this .....

    45 inches doesn’t match the scale of the piC with hot rod.
    And by a pretty big margin, like 30% larger than that pics scale. And that’s almost 4 feet, which is ridiculous if true... and ballsy.
    I guess a mortgage for their unicron is next.

    Insta bought!......by the looks of him, he can hold up a small display cabinet containing a few FT toons...maybe the dinobot set even......

    that'd fix the problem of where to put him for me....:)

    MOTUC Snake Mountain is so large that it has to be shipped as freight and costs $150 for even continental US deliveries.

    You do realize that all of your criticisms in this thread are baseless and without merit right?
